Grape Leaf Beef
(Bo Cuon La Nho)




  1. Using a mini food processor, finely mince lemongrass, onion and garlic.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, knead together lemongrass mixture, ground beef, salt, pepper, sugar, oyster sauce, cornstarch, oil and scallions. Set aside for 15 minutes.
  3. Place 1 1/2 tablespoons of filling on each grape leaf one inch from the edge nearest you. Form a 2-inch-long sausage. Fold inward both sides of leaf, and pressing down the mixture, fold over top of leaf and roll up. Repeat with remaining beef mixture.
  4. Thread three rolls on each bamboo skewer.
  5. Barbecue beef skewers over hot coals or in a 400 degree F oven, turning frequently for approximately 10 minutes until cooked through.
  6. Serve with Sweet and Sour Fish Sauce as an appetizer, or with rice noodles as an entree.
